FTR #868: The Assassination of Olof Palme, Part 1

The first of two pro­grams high­light­ing the unsolved 1986 assas­si­na­tion of Swedish Prime Min­is­ter Olof Palme, the broad­cast fea­tures a 1988 arti­cle by the bril­liant free­lance Dan­ish jour­nal­ist Hen­rik Kruger, author of “The Great Hero­in Coup: Drugs, Intel­li­gence and Inter­na­tion­al Fas­cism.” Through this exam­i­na­tion of the inter­sect­ed net­works that Kruger has termed (in “The Great Hero­in Coup”) “The Inter­na­tion­al Fascista,” we are able to observe the ele­ments of Oper­a­tion Con­dor, key indi­vid­u­als and insti­tu­tions com­pris­ing the for­mer World Anti-Com­mu­nist League, indi­vid­u­als and orga­ni­za­tions under­ly­ing “the Strat­e­gy of Ten­sion” in Italy, as well as the cast of char­ac­ters that man­aged the Iran-Con­tra machi­na­tions. Long the focal point of death threats and assas­si­na­tion attempts, Palme had earned the lethal ire of fas­cists in North and South Amer­i­ca, as well as Europe. The fail­ure to solve the killing, despite the pas­sage of almost 30 years and some very strong evi­den­tiary trib­u­taries, under­scores the grav­i­tas of the forces that destroyed Palme. Kruger’s arti­cle also serves as some­thing of an “in vit­ro” win­dow into many of the polit­i­cal net­works we have exam­ined over the years.

Good Evening Mr. Bush! I’ll Be Your Server Tonight!

Exem­pli­fy­ing the grotesque, orgias­tic hagiog­ra­phy to which the media have been sub­ject­ing us since George H.W. Bush died is a reput­ed con­ver­sa­tion between the dying George H.W. Bush and Dubya, as report­ed by James Bak­er. After speak­ing to oth­er off­spring and rel­a­tives, the dying Pop­py report­ed­ly spoke with Shrub, who alleged­ly said: “I’ll see you in Heav­en, Dad!” Sup­pos­ed­ly, Pop­py spoke no more before going on to his Eter­nal Reward. If, in fact, such a ren­dezvous does take place, we do not expect it to occur in the Celes­tial Here­after. Exem­pli­fy­ing the mur­der­ous real­i­ties of George H.W. Bush’s tenure on earth is his super­vi­sion of the Afghan Muja­hadin and the birth of Al-Qae­da: “ . . . . More to the point, now, in the Afghanistan War, Vice Pres­i­dent Bush’s inter­ests and Osama bin Laden’s con­verged. In using bin Laden’s Arab Afghans as proxy war­riors against the Sovi­ets, Bush advo­cat­ed a pol­i­cy that was ful­ly in line with Amer­i­can inter­ests at that time. But he did not con­sid­er the long-term impli­ca­tions of sup­port­ing a net­work of Islam­ic fun­da­men­tal­ist rebels. . . . . Specif­i­cal­ly, as Vice Pres­i­dent in the mid-eight­ies, Bush sup­port­ed aid­ing the mujahideen in Afghanistan through the Mak­tab al-Khi­damat (MAK) or Ser­vices Offices, which sent mon­ey and fight­ers to the Afghan resis­tance in Peshawar. ‘Bush was in charge of the covert oper­a­tions that sup­port­ed the MAK,’ says John Lof­tus, a Jus­tice Depart­ment offi­cial in the eight­ies. ‘They were essen­tial­ly hir­ing a ter­ror­ist to fight ter­ror­ism. . . . Cofound­ed by Osama bin Laden and Abdul­lah Azzam, the MAK was the pre­cur­sor to bin Laden’s glob­al ter­ror­ist net­work, Al Qae­da. It sent mon­ey and fight­ers to the Afghan resis­tance in Peshawar, Pak­istan, and even the Unit­ed States to bring thou­sands of war­riors to Afghanistan to fight the Sovi­et Union. The MAK was lat­er linked to the 1993 bomb­ing of the World Trade Cen­ter in New York through an office in Brook­lyn known as the Al-Kifah Refugee Cen­ter. It is not clear how much con­tact he had with bin Laden, but Sheikh Omar Abdel Rah­man, the ‘Blind Sheikh,’ who mas­ter­mind­ed the 1993 bomb­ing of the World Trade Cen­ter, also appeared in Peshawar on occa­sion. . . . ”

FTR #869 The Assassination of Olof Palme, Part 2

Con­tin­u­ing dis­cus­sion and analy­sis from FTR #868, this pro­gram under­scores the pos­si­ble role of Swedish and Scan­di­na­vian fas­cists over­lap­ping both WACL and Sapo, the Swedish intel­li­gence ser­vice. Involved with escape net­works forged to aid the inter­na­tion­al flight from jus­tice of fas­cists and Nazis, the prin­ci­pals in these net­works exhib­it­ed behav­ior around the time of the Palme killing that is sug­ges­tive. Worth not­ing in this regard is the late Stieg Larsson’s inves­ti­ga­tion of the Palme killing, which point­ed in the direc­tion of some of the same fig­ures exam­ined in the Kruger essay. The pro­gram con­cludes with an exam­i­na­tion of the Bofors muni­tions firm and its cor­po­rate links to Third Reich indus­try and the post­war Bor­mann cap­i­tal net­work, with which it may well be affil­i­at­ed.

The Assassination of Olof Palme

In our ongo­ing series of inter­views with Peter Lev­en­da, the author of “The Hitler Lega­cy,” we have high­light­ed points of dis­cus­sion relat­ing to WACL, Oper­a­tion Con­dor, the Iran/Contra scan­dal and oth­er ele­ments that might not be famil­iar to recent/younger read­ers and lis­ten­ers. Peter detailed his hair-rais­ing vis­it to Colo­nia Dig­nidad in FTR #839. While going through some box­es in stor­age, we came across an old essay by the bril­liant Dan­ish jour­nal­ist Hen­rik Kruger, author of “The Great Hero­in Coup,” ana­lyz­ing the unsolved 1986 assas­si­na­tion of Swedish prime min­is­ter Olof Palme. We present that arti­cle here, in order to famil­iar­ize younger read­ers and lis­ten­ers with indi­vid­u­als and insti­tu­tions we haven’t cov­ered in decades. All of the con­tents of this web­site as of 12/19/2014–Dave Emory’s 35+ years of research and broadcasting–as well as hours of video­taped lec­tures are avail­able on a 32GB flash dri­ve. Dave offers his pro­grams and arti­cles for free–your sup­port is very much appre­ci­at­ed.

FTR #825 Generalissimo Francisco Franco May NOT Be So Dead, After All

Fas­cist dic­ta­tor Fran­cis­co Fran­co passed away decades ago, yet his polit­i­cal lega­cy lives on. Through­out Spain, memo­ri­al­iza­tion of Fran­co and his sol­diers con­tin­ues. The per­pet­u­a­tion of that lega­cy is evi­dent in the polit­i­cal resume of Mar­i­ano Rajoy, the son of a Fran­co judge. Rajoy’s Pop­u­lar Par­ty is a “kindler, gen­tler” edi­tion of Fran­co’s Falange. In addi­tion to jin­go­is­tic saber rat­tling at the British ter­ri­to­ry of Gibral­tar, Rajoy is join­ing with Argenti­na to pres­sure the UK over the Fal­ka­lnd Islands. By danc­ing in tan­dem with Argenti­na, Rajoy is embrac­ing the geo-polit­i­cal lega­cy of Hitler, who select­ed Spain as his first tar­get for con­trol because of its influ­ence in Latin America–Argentina in par­tic­u­lar.

Is a “Deep Falange” at Work in Spain and Argentina?

Eco­nom­i­cal­ly beset Spain is wax­ing aggres­sive toward British-gov­erned Gibral­tar, using that prin­ci­pal­i­ty’s “fis­cal irreg­u­lar­i­ties” as jus­ti­fi­ca­tion because of the nation’s “EU oblig­a­tions.” The Rajoy gov­ern­ment is coor­di­nat­ing its efforts with Argenti­na. The coop­er­a­tion is mil­i­tary, as well as polit­i­cal. Rajoy’s Peo­ple’s Par­ty evolved from Fran­co’s Falange. It does not appear to have alto­geth­er shed its fas­cist her­itage.

‘Roid Rage: The Bosches, the Bushes and Sports Doping

The Bush fam­i­ly has been very, very close to the anti-Cas­tro Cuban exile com­mu­ni­ty for decades, includ­ing and espe­cial­ly the late Orlan­do Bosch, head of the CORU orga­ni­za­tion. Now, it emerges that a rel­a­tive of Orlan­do Bosch heads the Bio­gen­e­sis firm, under inves­ti­ga­tion for alleged­ly pro­vid­ing per­for­mance-enhanc­ing drugs to pro­fes­sion­al ath­letes.

Don’t Applaud for Him, Argentina: Cardinal Bergoglio (Pope Francis) and the Dirty War

Hail­ing from Argenti­na, the new Pope should not be viewed as a break with the Vat­i­can’s past. Bergoglio appears to have turned lib­er­al priests over to the jun­ta, pos­si­bly assist­ing in their ‘inter­ro­ga­tion!” He also helped to obscure the kid­nap­ping of the chil­dren of vic­tims of that mur­der­ous jun­ta dur­ing its “Dirty War.” Key mem­bers of the jun­ta belonged to the P‑2 Lodge, which clan­des­tine­ly ran the Vat­i­can Bank.

AFA 17–21: Who Shot the Pope?

A major intel­li­gence-relat­ed con­tro­ver­sy of the late Cold War, the shoot­ing of Pope John Paul II in 1981 was wide­ly and mis­tak­en­ly blamed on the Sovi­et Union.

AFA 24–28: The CIA, the Military & Drugs

The his­to­ry of the intel­li­gence com­mu­ni­ty and the nar­cotics trade.
